Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Author and publisher state at the outset that they are not responsible for adverse effects resulting from the reader's adoption of Wigmore's Living Food Diet, a nutritional regimen that uses germinated and sprouting seeds. With that prominent caveat, the book goes on to discuss the history of this type of food, a staple in the Orient since ancient days. Wigmore, founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute of Boston, includes lists of seeds for sprouting, directions for maintaining a sprout garden (indoors and out) by various methods, and recipes for food and drinks from the harvest. Clear drawings complement the text.

Seriously, she was really a pioneer...and did many great things for others, unselfishly, to promote global healthcare. As to the book, another great Wigmore book with easy, clear and precise ideas one can readily put into motion...and soon be eating delicious sprouts all year long, using her funky recipes. If you're a city-dweller, she also explains how-to for apartment living. Great book to offer to any beginning living-foods vegetarian you may know. Good investment. Reasonable price.

Terrific! A wonderful book on sprouting for many a skill level. Getting started couldn't be easier, as she provides several methods, along with helpful charts and recipes. Sprouting is a simple way to lead a nutritious lifestyle, and this book details the process quite well. (p.s. - the section on composting is an added bonus!)

Great book - lots of info on all types of sprouts - why to grow sprouts, how to and what to do with them - love the recipes. While i have done some sprouting - this book has certainly expanded my horizons. I've been experimenting with many different kinds of sprouts.

This book is ok because it has a few tasty sounding recipes, but I thought it would be more in depth on specific sprouts and sprouting techniques. I read the entire book in a couple of hours and I am not a fast reader. I wish I would have just checked it out at the library. The book is mostly about the authors dietary beliefs in which I do not follow. Pretty much a useless book for me. Maybe if you are a raw foodist and are looking to eat sprouts for most or all of your calories this would be a good book for you. I wanted more info than this book provided.

Simple, practical, useful - must have for any health-concious person out there. I started growing 3 types of sprouts right away using the jar method without having to purchase any new equipment (just rinsed out a couple of berry jam jars) and now I successfully produce a couple of cups of lentil, fenugreek and sesame sprouts a week.

I had purchased another Sprouting book by the Guru himself and was greatly disappointed (for my taste - is still a good book) so went ahead and splurged and bought another one by My Lady, Ann Wigmore.
I wish I had bought this book first.

Anyway, it's written clearly, consisely, has very interesting historical facts, and will get one excited about sprouting!

It was what I was looking for and I can't wait to get started!

I would say, don't waste your money on this!
I bought this book based on reviews of how "great" it is for beginners. Well, I have enough of the PC essays, commentary and predictable "takes" on nutrition. I wanted straight-forward step-by-step info on sprouting to use on the new sprouting jar I just bought, not 4 chapters of dialogue (ad nauseaum) of philosophies, beliefs, mythology and esoterica on the nutrition, multitude and PC use of sprouts; "Sprouts and your sex life," "sprouts since the beginning of time," etc. So I had to get to chapter 5 to even begin, and I am still not ready to begin. Why is it that everyone writing beginner's books has to preface and infuse them with their own philosophy, and assume that it is God-given that they puff every comment or lesson with it. This is hardly what I would call a book for beginners - - - maybe if one is a nutritionist it might be of interest, but I was falling asleep at two sentences in. I wanted to learn how to sprout, not more verbal effluvium on things I already know, agree or disagree with, don't understand or have no interest in yet.
Just give me the basics FIRST, please.
I looked long and hard before choosing a book and I am HIGHLY disappointed so far.
If you are a beginner, I suggest you keep on looking past this supposed book "for Beginners." OR, google "Sprouting" and go to the online sprouting "school" pages.

I REALLY DO NOT CARE about the history, advantage, etc. until I have tried it myself, and I cannot do that until I AM TOLD HOW TO venture into this. With this book all I wanted to do was quit before I even started.
